There will be times in your life and journey that God will require you to move faster than you are currently moving, and you must begin to separate from everything that slows you down. It is at such a time that you will understand the dangers of wrong people. Wrong people will slow you down. You must separate from wrong people who want to slow you down. Joshua was old and stricken in years but had assignments unaccomplished. You cannot afford to waste time. There are some people that their assignment from the devil in your life is to slow you down and let every negative issue in life catch up with you. You must keep separating from such people in order to keep moving on at the pace of God. You must separate from people who just want to keep you on one spot.
The “weight” being referred to in the scripture above includes any wrong person in your life that just weighs you down. You get weighed down every time you talk with a negative person. The “sin that so easily beset” is a sin that always catches you. There are people that the devil wraps sin around to slow you down, and you must avoid them. Your journey in life is not a game; it is a race. It is a race because time is attached to it. When time is attached to something, it’s a race. You don’t have all the time in the world to run the race of your destiny.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive a divine boost for my journey in destiny. Help me to keep pace with divine schedule in Jesus’ name. Amen!
